    Looks to be a good tool. How about showing PHF a little love and add it to the search list. thanks

    Is there a way to find out what the day of this cheap fare is so it can be searched somewhere it is bookable? I’m seeing BWI – BCN for $138 on your search tool, which is amazing. How can I translate this to actually finding a ticket?

    Thanks for all your work, this looks cool! 🙂

    Thanks Seth, you’re on a roll lately with useful tools.

    Awesome, this is wonderful.
    I may be missing something but I’m not sure the destination filters are working right. For example, I put in BWI in the box up top and selected Destination Region as North America… but I am seeing tons of fares from Europe TO BWI – when what I’d really like to see is just fares between BWI and other North American points.

    Same as Andy, its not filtering down fares from GRR

    I figured it was something like that. Get that working and I will be using this regularly – and, as I tried to argue to FareCompare, gladly pay for it!

    Also, unlike farecompare, it appears to actually work, although there seem to be some discrepancies compared to eg expertflyer.

    The results are much more accurate than I ever got from farecompare for skyteam out of MSP.

    Hi Seth,
    The specific fare was DL MSP-NAS. Query date seems to show up for some results but not others – currently it is not showing so I can’t tell you the date.

    your tool shows lowest as TXSL04 at $231

    expertflyer has these as 2 lowest fares:
    TSL012 DL T One-Way 133.00(USD) E
    TXSL04 DL T One-Way 160.00(USD) E 07

    Different lowest fare, and different value in this case. I imagine it’s just delta playing with pricing.

    Are you always returning round-trip price? Would be very nice to look at 1-ways as well sometimes, or at least get an indication of whether the fare requires a round trip.

    no problem, and most of the time easy enough to know anyway.

    You’re *way* ahead of where farecompare was in terms of returning large amounts of useful fares.

    It does look like that fare has been bouncing around a bit.

    Thanks Seth I hope your generosity providing these tools gives you no end of good karma and great travels.

    The tool says the cheapest fares from my airport (RDU)are to Barcelona and Madrid. How is this information helpful in making travel decisions if the taxes and fees (which are substantial) are omitted? It’s like advertising a car for the price of the tires (engine, doors, seats, frame, and gas not included)….sorry, I just don’t see how this tool is useful without full pricing….

    Great tool, Seth! Anyway you can add LIT to the list of airports?

    Very nice! Thank you for the time and effort this must have taken.

    Any chance of adding TYS or CHA? I’m glad to see AVL, though TYS (and perhaps CHA) definitely have more operations. Thanks again!

    Fantastic tool. Perhaps a little screen cleanup required, but the speed and quantity of available fares is amazing.

    Wish list:
    1. More business class fares
    (Z C D J fares) Only a few are listed.
    2. More Asian airports –
    HKG TPE ICN SHA PVG KUL
    3. Easier to use filters
    4. Alliance groupings as an option when selecting airline.

    Also tried to sign up for the annual First Class options, but no screen appeared for payment. Perhaps an OSX issue? If so I will log into a PC.

    Also – how often is the fare data updated?

    Still not able to use the First Class upgrade. Tried using both Firefox and Safari on OSX.

    Thanks for adding TYS and CHA! That’s terrific!

    One slight oddity, though. It seems that only TYS-Canada fares are loading when North America is selected. I don’t see any TYS-United States fares, though I may be doing something wrong.

    Yup, it’s working now. Thanks so much!!!

    Neat tool. How come it wont search for “R” fares on United. I tried an Intl and a Dom where the UA website showed R availability. The Single-Bucket Inventory gave no reply. I’d gladly become a first-class member for that feature.

    What happened to this? So much for spending $ to get access to the W fare data
